Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The 2 major articulations of the wrist are Radiocarpal joint and Midcarpal joint

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the two major articulations of the wrist are indeed the Radiocarpal joint and the Midcarpal joint. The Radiocarpal joint is formed by the articulation between the radius bone of the forearm and the carpal bones of the wrist. It allows for flexion, extension, adduction, and abduction movements of the wrist. The Midcarpal joint is located between the two rows of carpal bones and allows for gliding movements between these bones. These two joints are crucial for the overall mobility and function of the wrist.

    Muscle length for the triceps is done by flexing the elbow and shoulder

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because flexing both the elbow and shoulder joints is required to fully lengthen the triceps muscle. When the elbow is flexed, the triceps muscle is shortened, and when the shoulder is flexed, it further stretches the triceps muscle. Therefore, both movements are necessary to achieve the maximum length for the triceps muscle.

    Carrying angle and rest position of elbow is:

    • A.

      5-10 degrees valgus

    • B.

      15-20 degrees valgus

    • C.

      15-20 degrees varus

    • D.

      5-10 degrees varus

    Correct Answer
    B. 15-20 degrees valgus
    Explanation
    The carrying angle and rest position of the elbow refers to the angle at which the forearm naturally rests in relation to the upper arm. A valgus angle means that the forearm deviates away from the midline of the body, while a varus angle means that the forearm deviates towards the midline. The correct answer, 15-20 degrees valgus, indicates that the forearm naturally rests at an angle that deviates away from the midline of the body by 15-20 degrees.

    A. Humeroulnar/ Humeroradial
    C. Proximal Radioulnar/ Distal radioulnar
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Humeroulnar/ Humeroradial and Proximal Radioulnar/ Distal radioulnar. These are the four articulations that involve the elbow joint. The Humeroulnar/ Humeroradial articulation refers to the joint between the humerus and the ulna, as well as the joint between the humerus and the radius. The Proximal Radioulnar/ Distal radioulnar articulation refers to the joint between the proximal end of the radius and the ulna, as well as the joint between the distal end of the radius and the ulna. These articulations allow for the movement and stability of the elbow joint.

      Carpometacarpal

    • B.

      Humeroulnar

    • C.

      Metacarpophalangeal

    • D.

      Proximal interphalangeal/ Distal interphalangeal

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Carpometacarpal
    C. Metacarpophalangeal
    D. Proximal interphalangeal/ Distal interphalangeal
    Explanation
    The joints of the hand include the carpometacarpal joint, which connects the carpals (wrist bones) to the metacarpals (hand bones). The metacarpophalangeal joints are the joints between the metacarpals and the phalanges (finger bones). The proximal interphalangeal joints are the joints between the proximal and middle phalanges, while the distal interphalangeal joints are the joints between the middle and distal phalanges. Therefore, the correct answer includes all of these joints.
